    Variety

    Helmed by Steve Sawalich, this real-life dramedy is anchored by Michael Sheen's captivating performance as the severely handicapped, profoundly acerbic Art Honeyman.

    A bad movie with a good heart.

    The result is that they never truly find the innate drama in Pimentel's story, instead simply recounting four or five decades' worth of events that shaped the man.
